Brief Review:

We don't remember the last time we recommended a Samsung phone under 10000 to our users. Samsung is trying to change that and the Samsung Galaxy M10 and M20 look like a step in that direction. The Samsung Galaxy M10 is priced at around 8000 to 9000 Rs. and comes with a fresh design and a large 6.22-inch Infinity V display. Infinity V is just a fancy name for the small notch displays that we are seeing these days.

The front camera is placed inside the notch and the earpiece is above the notch. The bezels all around are thin but the chin does take a good amount of space at the bottom. The display resolution is just HD 720p so it is not that sharp. Color accuracy isn't great either. The phone has a plastic unibody design with curved edges. The phone feels light because of the plastic but it doesn't feel cheap. We haven't done a bend test so we don't know how strong it is. Overall, this is the best-looking smartphone under 10000 from Samsung.

There is no fingerprint sensor on the phone so face lock or pin lock are the only ways to make your phone secure. The face unlock is slow and takes 2-3 seconds sometimes which is irritating. Most people will end up using pin lock because of that. The battery inside the phone is 3400 mAh and the charger that comes with the phone is 5V 1A charger. The battery is not big but because of low-resolution display and efficient processor, the battery backup is great. The phone will last for a day easily with medium to heavy usage. The charging is slow because of the 1A charger. It takes more than 3 hours to fully charge the device from 0 to 100%.

The Samsung M10 is powered by Exynos 7870 chipset which first came out in 2016. It not a powerful chipset and cannot compete with Snapdragon 625 or 450. There are 2 variants of M10: 2GB RAM and 16GB storage and 3GB RAM and 32GB storage. Because of the average processor, the multitasking isn't smooth and you will see some lag even on the 3GB RAM variant. Samsung M10 is not suitable for games like PUBG. For normal users who need a phone for social media apps and calling, Samsung M10 is a good device.

The Samsung M10 runs on Samsungs Experience UI which is a skin based on Android 8.1 Oreo. There is a good amount of bloatware. The UI is clean and easy to use though. The performance of M10 on benchmarks is average as well. It scores less than 50000 on Antutu benchmarks. 

On the camera side, we have a surprise from Samsung. The rear camera is a dual setup of 13MP (f/1.9) + 5MP (f/2.2 ultra-wide). While most companies just throw in a useless 2MP depth sensor as a secondary camera, Samsung has added an ultra wide angle lens which can be very useful. The primary sensor is also a good one and has an f/1.9 aperture which helps in low light shots. The camera on the front is a 5MP f/2.0 sensor. Both front and rear camera performance are decent for an under 10000 smartphone. The pictures taken in daylight look nice with good amount of details. The portrait mode pictures also look decent. 

The phone comes with a headphone jack and a triple slot sim tray so you can use 2 VOLTE sims with a MicroSD card. Dedicated sim slot is a really good option when you are buying phones with 16GB or 32GB of storage. 

Overall, Samsung M10 is a good value for money smartphone. Finally, Samsung has launched a smartphone which we can recommend to our users. The multitasking and gaming aren't great though. So if your usage is social media apps, taking pictures, watching videos and calling, Samsung M10 is a good phone under 10000. It is available in Blue and Black color. The blue color is our favorite color of M10 and go for the 3GB 32GB storage as the price difference is just Rs. 1000. If you need more power then Realme 2 and Redmi Y2 are good options at a similar price.

2. Asus Zenfone Max M2

Zenfone Max M2

Features

  • 4 GB RAM | 64 GB ROM | MicroSD upto 2048 GB
  • 6.25 inch HD+ Display 1080p
  • Back Camera: Dual 13MP + 2MP
  • Front Camera: 8MP
  • 4000mAh Battery
  • Dual Sim Device
  • Available in Black, Blue Colors

Best Price ₹10999



Brief Review:

Asus Zenfone Max M2 is an economical variant of the Max M2 Pro which comes with a less powerful processor and an HD+ Plus display compared to Full HD+ on the M2 Pro with other things remaining more or less the same.

This Max M2 comes with a notch type 6.26 HD+ display which has good brightness and sharpness level. The notch size on this phone is slightly bigger than compared to the M2 Pro. Also, there is no Gorilla glass on this phone which is expected in the price point so you need to be extra cautious that you do not drop it. On the build quality side, the phone looks solid and the back of the phone is metallic which feels sturdy in hand.

On the processor side, this Max M2 comes with a relatively new Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 which was seen on the only phone, Honor 8C. The Antutu benchmark scores come around 1,05,000 which is equivalent to the Samsung M20 phone and is a good score for sub 10k phone. The performance gets support from 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal memory. It supports a dedicated SD card slot to expand the memory up to 2 TB which is a very much needed feature as the phone is now increasingly used for clicking/storing photos videos and other data. There is also a 3 GB 32 GB variant available for a price on under 10k.

In our camera review, we found this phone clicks good pictures which given the price point are best. In terms of specifications, the sensors are similar to the Pro version. On the rear camera, there is a 13MP primary sensor and a 2 MP dedicated depth sensor and an 8 MP sensor for front camera selfies. The photos capture a lot of details with very apt quality, sharpness and color reproduction. However, the low light camera clicks and video struggled with noise and in capturing all the details. The camera app also takes a bit of time while focussing on the objects.

The portrait shots also produce attractive images with proper edge detection/bokeh effect most of the time unless there is a complex object in the background. The video recording is available in 4K (Ultra HD) resolution but stabilization is not available in 4K. You can enable stabilization for video recording under the 1080p resolution.

Coming to the gaming performance, the new Snapdragon 632 fares well is most of the scenario. The low to medium end games work perfectly fine without any issues however the high-end games do suffer some lag because of the processor performance, especially in games like PUBG which require you to focus on enemies takes some time delay compared to phones with the high-end processor.  Overall, the gaming performance is good in day to day life with very minor heating observed during our review. The full-screen games mask the notch completely with no option to enable it for now. Asus might change this with a software update in the future.

This Max M2 like the Max M2 Pro and Max M1 Pro comes with stock android with minimum bloatware apps like Facebook, Instagram etc which you might anyways need. The phone has been launched with Android Oreo and is supposed to get the Android Pie update. The phone supports dual VoLTE so if your network provider has VoLTE in your area, then you can use it on both the sim.  There are fingerprint and face unlocking mechanism available and both are fast and accurate and much improved from the previous Asus phones. There is no IP rating on this phone so keep it safe from water and dust and they can damage the phone.

For the battery backup, Asus has provided a 4000 mAh battery which gives a backup of around 1 complete day with heavy usage and around 1.5 days for medium to low usage. There is a 10W charger bundled in the box which takes around 120 minutes for complete charging and the phone does not support fast charging. Despite a big battery, the phone only weighs 160gm and feels light in hand. In terms of accessories, there is a TPU case bundled in the box but no earphones.

If you are looking for a complete phone and have a budget of around 10000, then you can look to choose this phone as it offers a solid quality, decent processor and a good battery backup. You can also read about the Samsung M10 if you do not need a powerful processor but a phone with good looks. Honor 8C also offer similar specification and comes in a similar price range.

3. Oppo Realme C1

Realme C1

Features

  • 2 GB RAM | 16 GB ROM | MicroSD upto 256 GB
  • 6.2 inch HP Plus 720p
  • Back Camera: 13MP + 2MP Dual Camera
  • Front Camera: 8MP
  • 4230mAh Battery
  • Dual Sim Device
  • Available in Diamond Red, Diamond Black Colors

Best Price ₹6999



Brief Review:

Oppo Realme C1 has been launched alongside the Realme 2 Pro just after a month of the launch of Realme 2. Realme C1 is basically a downgraded version of Realme 2 and comes at a very attractive price point of below 7k. C1 has a polycarbonate design and Realme has replaced the diamond cut design with a plain back with a glossy finish that looks good. Let us check the review and specifications of the latest sensation as a budget smartphone, the Realme C1.

Apart from a glossy finish, Realme has introduced a Notch display design in this price segment and this is the first by any company. Given the notch design, the phone has a big screen of 6.2 inches which has an HD Plus resolution. The phone looks decent and superb for an under 7k device. Redmi had recently launched the Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A but none of them features a notch and Realme C1 has better design compared to them.

Coming to the processor, Realme has introduced a decently powerful Snapdragon 450 with 2GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage. On the AnTuTu benchmark, the Realme C1 scores around 57000 which is ahead when compared to the Redmi 6A and Honor 7S at the same price point. The AnTutu score is also maximum seen yet in under 7000 smartphones. Here you can easily do all the daily tasks smoothly, you can even play heavy games at low graphics settings but you would face frame drops, lag or hang problem at higher graphics setting or heavy multitasking. Because of the low internal storage, Realme C1 comes with 256 GB of dedicated SD card along with dual sim operation.

On the camera, we have a dual sensor at the back with a 13MP f/2.2 primary sensor and a 2MP depth sensor for portrait shots. The camera shots are decently fine and we could not expect anything better here. The picture had good colour contrast and sharpness but we see noise in the photos in the low lighting conditions. On the front, the camera has been little downgraded from the Realme 2 from 8 MP to 5 MP sensor now. Here the images are good and well balanced but the portrait shots somewhat face the heat with not so proper edge detection. But overall, considering it only costs 6999, we will like to restrict complaining or raising our expectations from the best value for money smartphone.

Realme had also never compromised with the battery backup, here Realme C1 had astonished everyone with a 4230 mAh battery rating that is insane and can last for around 2 days with no charge in between. Even with some heavy usage, you should get a backup of 1.5 days easily. It has a micro USB port available for charging and does not support fast charging and you get a 10W charger inside the box. Realme C1 is way ahead in battery backup when compared to the Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A which have a battery rating of 3000 mAh only.

Oppo Realme C1 runs on ColorOS 5.1 which is a custom skin based on Android Oreo 8.1 and comes with some third party apps preinstalled. The UI is same as seen on the Oppo branded smartphones and we must say it is not the best user interface and Realme has already received reviews from the community and might be working on an upgrade for the next smartphones.

Coming to the unlocking, Realme has done some cost-cutting on the fingerprint sensor for an extra hardware component as was on the Realme 1. The fingerprint sensor is missing but it supports the face unlocking feature which is super quick to unlock in a fraction of seconds. There is no IP rating on this phone and hence keep it protected from water and dust.

Overall, in this Oppo Realme C1, you get a stylish looking smartphone with a notch design, a good processor and camera for the price range, a massive battery but a support for only face unlocking. Certainly, as per our review of Oppo Realme C1, we find this smartphone as was the best phone under 7000.

Brief Review:

Oppo Realme 2 has been launched as the successor in just 4 months after the success of Oppo Realme 1. Realme 1 lacked a dual camera, a fingerprint sensor but at the pricing was a great phone. Oppo has launched Realme 2 at a similar pricing but with better specifications and follows the current trend and also covers up the features that were missing in the Oppo Realme 1.  It gets a notch display, beautiful design, long battery, dual camera and finally a fingerprint sensor all available under 10000. Let us look at the features, specifications and reviews of this great budget smartphone Oppo Realme 2.

Oppo Realme 2 comes with a 6.2 inch HD Plus screen having a resolution of 1520 X 720 pixels and has proper brightness and good viewing angles. The display has a notch design with an aspect ratio of 19:9. In terms of design, it comes with the OPPO famous diamond cut pattern that adds true beauty to the smartphone and it is easily the best-looking smartphone under 10000. 

Realme 2 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor supported by 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of memory. It scores around 77000 on the AnTuTu Benchmark and works smoothly in all the day to day usage so you can use depending on your usage. You can also play low to medium level games but high-end games face some lag issues. There is a 4GB 64 GB variant also available for this smartphone.

On the camera side, Realme has not disappointed this time as it comes with a Dual rear camera with 13MP which is the primary sensor and 2MP which is the depth sensor for the portrait effects. Here you get an HDR mode, portrait mode for blurring the background and also the beauty mode. The front camera is an 8 MP sensor which comes with the HDR mode and also supports depth effect using the software. The front camera also has AI beauty support to improve the selfie experience and offers you the best selfie. The shutter speed of the camera is quick and we could click pictures without any delay. The video recording support on the Realme 2 has a maximum 1080 pixel resolution and the audio quality is also recorded clear on the video.

Oppo Realme 2 runs on ColorOS 5.1 which is a custom skin based on Android Oreo 8.1 and comes with some third party apps preinstalled. Realme 2 has also introduced a fingerprint sensor which was missing on the Realme 1 smartphone. The fingerprint sensor is very quick and accurate. The smartphone also supports face unlocking supported by the front camera which is located in the notch. 

It has a proper dual sim support and a dedicated SD card slot that can expand the storage up to 256GB. It has a massive battery capacity of 4230 mAh and the phone still does not weigh heavy and can be easily held in hand. The battery gives a backup of around 1.5 to 2 days which is good for people who look for a long battery smartphone. It has a micro USB port available for charging and does not support fast charging and you get a 10W charger inside the box. There is not an IP rating on this phone and hence keep it protected from water and dust.

Overall, in this Oppo Realme 2, you get a stylish looking smartphone with a notch design, a good processor and camera for the price range, a massive battery and support for finger and face unlocking. Certainly, as per our review of Oppo Realme 2, it is the best phone under 10000.

Brief Review:

Honor has been very aggressive in the under 20000 smartphone range. They have launched Honor 9 Lite, Honor 7X, Honor 9i which have received great response from the users. Honor is now launching Honor 9N, which is a rebranded Honor 9i(2018) launched in China. It comes with a notch display and beautiful design and is a good smartphone under 15000. Let us look at the reviews, specifications and features of this beautiful phone. 

Honor 9N comes with a 5.84-inch notch display with a Full HD Plus resolution of 1080 x 2280 pixels. The display is a full view display having an aspect ratio of 19:9. In terms of design, it has a glass design and looks similar to the one seen Honor 9 Lite. The front has a notch and the back has a horizontal dual camera setup with a LED flash at the top and a fingerprint sensor. Honor has launched Honor 9N with a tagline of #ExtraOrdinaryBeauty and the design and looks truly upholds the statement. It is lightweight and easy to hold and operate with one hand.

On the performance side, Honor has once again used the in-house Kirin 659 processor which we have seen in all the midrange phones starting from Honor 9 Lite, Honor 9i (2017) and the Honor 7X. This smartphone has 4 GB of RAM with 64 GB of internal storage. We have seen the similar configuration in all the Honor phones in this price range and though Kirin 659 is not a powerhouse as Snapdragon 636 seen in Redmi Note 5 Pro but does handle multitasking with ease and one can easily go through all the daily tasks without any difficulty. But that Kirin 659 at the pricing of under 15000 does not raise the bar in the performance side when compared to the likes to Note 5 Pro, Asus Zenfone Max or the Mi A2 which has just launched. Honor 9N scores around 75000 on the Antutu Benchmark.

Coming to the camera, Honor 9N supports a dual rear camera setup with 13MP as the primary sensor and 2MP sensor as the secondary sensor with Dual tone LED flash and autofocus. The camera works fine with clear and crisp shots and good colour reproduction. The camera also supports face detection, portrait (bokeh) mode and HDR mode. The front camera is a 16MP shooter which is located inside the front notch and as expected clicks beautiful pictures and also supports portrait shots via software processing.

Honor 9N runs on EMUI 8.1 which is a custom skin based on the Android 8.1 Oreo and works smooth. They are some bloatware but Honor has well refined the EMUI over the years. There is a hybrid micro SD card slot to expand the memory up to 256 GB. Honor 9N supports both fingerprint and face unlocking mechanism and both of the methods work accurately and swiftly. Honor 9N does not carry any IP rating so keep it safe from the dust and water.  It has a battery rated at 3000 mAh which can keep the phone powered up for a day. You would need to charge it after a full day usage. 

Honor 9N though has been launched as the rebranded version Honor 9i (2018) but in actual it is a more beautiful version of all the Honor midrange phones. It has a stunning looking notch and is Honor's first phone under 15000 with a notch. The dazzling looks are very attractive and if you are looking to buy a phone under 15000 with a notch display, Honor 9N has to be your top choice. If you are not much concerned with the high-end gaming or heavy usage, this phone would work through easily.

The 3GB 32GB variant is priced at Rs. 11999 and the 4GB 64GB variant is priced at Rs. 13999. Honor has added a 4GB 128GB variant as well which will cost you 17999. We think the middle variant 4GB 64B provides the best value for money.

6. Motorola Moto E5

Moto E5

Features

  • 2 GB RAM | 16 GB ROM | MicroSD upto 256 GB
  • 5.7 inch HD+ Display 720p
  • Back Camera: 13MP
  • Front Camera: 5MP
  • 4000mAh Battery
  • Dual Sim Device
  • Available in Gold, Gray Colors

Best Price ₹9999



Brief Review:

Moto E5 is the close younger sibling of the E5 Plus we just discussed above. Launched alongside, the devices are pretty much identical with the plus model packing a bigger screen and with a bigger screen comes bigger responsibility in terms of battery. The looks are a bit different though, Moto E5 takes a more plain approach with a simple plastic back like It always has been, the build quality is solid but not as premium looking as the E5 Plus. At the back, we find the same round camera cut-out followed by a fingerprint scanner with Moto branding.

Motorola has put efforts into modernising the E and G lineup to make up to 2018 standards and hence we see the first big leap upfront - the 5.7-inch 18:9 display with the same resolution as E5 Plus - 720 x 1440 pixels making a pixel density of 282 PPI which is slightly better than E5 Plus on paper but not that big a difference in reality. Motorola says that the device is protected by Gorilla Glass but the version wasn’t specified.

On the inside, E5 is exactly like Its elder brother E5 Plus with Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 running the business and aided by Adreno 308 for graphics. The duo is not the best and latest. We feel Motorola could’ve gone with at least a 600-series Snapdragon. So the performance is just like an everyday smartphone with no hiccups in average tasks - emails, calls, photos - but things get a little shaky as you push more and more apps. The device is not built for too much hardcore performance and it is quite evident. You can get through casual games on this one but expecting high-end gaming can be a mistake.

There is just 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. You can increase the storage by up to 256GB by a MicroSD card. The 2GB RAM is unable to provide a fluid experience and the device feels laggy. On benchmarks side, you can expect a score of around 30000 to 35000 in Antutu Benchmarks which is one of the lowest for phones priced in this range.

Right now, the E5 is announced with only a single model featuring 16GB of onboard storage and 2GB of RAM, which puts It at the bottom of the Moto lineup. In the camera department, We are a little surprised as the device packs a 13 MP (f/2.0, 1.12μm) sensor with all the usual tricks. The megapixel count is one more than E5 Plus the pixel size is what goes unnoticed. E5 Plus camera has a bigger pixel size which I think should produce better or almost equal photos compared to this camera. On the front, we have a 5MP, f/2.2 sensor, which again is slightly lesser compared to 5MP, f/2.0 sensor on the E5 Plus.

Motorola E5 Plus runs on Android 8.0 Oreo, out of the box which is a no-brainer in 2018, while Android P is just around the corner. The software is fluid and responsive, there are no fancy customizations or super bloated skins. With big 4000mAh of battery, E5 can last well beyond a day. Motorola has been good enough to provide fast charging on the device which is really helpful with such a big battery. There’s no IP rating by Moto, so It’ll be in your favor to keep this device away from liquids.

Moto E5 has been priced at Rs. 9999 in India. At this price, it is tough to recommend it to anyone because you can get phones like Redmi Note 5, Realme 1, Redmi Y2 and Honor 7C which will perform way better than Moto E5.

Brief Review:

Infinix has been slowly and steadily grasping up some smartphone market share with its great value for money phone. With Infinix Hot S3 raking in some good sales number and great user reviews in the budget segment smartphone, Infinix Hot 6 Pro also looks to do the same with some great features and specifications for a pricing of under 8000. Let us check the review of each aspect from design, processor, camera, software and much more in this Infinix Hot 6 Pro.

In the design and display, Infinix Hot 6 Pro has a 5.99-inch screen with HD Plus resolution. It is a bezel-less display with an aspect ratio of 18:9 and the screen is super bright, with great colour reproduction. The viewing angles of the display are also great as you can watch videos easily with the smartphone at different angles. Inifnix Hot 6 Pro is built of metal, yes metal and not plastic, and feels solid in hand.

On the performance side, Hot 6 Pro does pretty well given its price tag of 8k. It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 and scores around 41000 on the Antutu benchmark. The smartphone comes with a 3 GB of RAM which very well supports the functional performance of Infinix Hot 6 Pro. It can easily run through your day to day tasks of watching videos, chatting, playing low-end games with decent multitasking experience, though high-end games and heavy multitasking are a big no, and it would not be fair to expect that from a phone under 8000.

Infinix Hot 6 Pro comes with 32 GB of internal memory and a dedicated MicroSD card slot to expand the storage by up to 128 GB. So it can be used as a proper dual sim phone with expanded storage.  It has a 3.5 mm headphone jack, charging port and a single speaker located at the bottom. The box comes with a 5V 2A charger and a protective transparent back case and a screen protector.

Talking about the most important aspect of a smartphone nowadays, the camera. In the camera segment, Infinix Hot 6 Pro again shatters the roof. It has a dual rear camera of 13 MP main sensor and a 2MP depth sensor. Previous Infinix phones have been great camera performer and Hot 6 Pro also does a pretty good job. The images look natural in both day and artificial light conditions and the bokeh mode also works well. The rear camera also supports an HDR mode which brightens up the image. This smartphone also supports 1080 p video recording.

On the front camera, we have a 5 MP sensor with LED flash. The camera works great in the price range and also has support for software-based bokeh mode. Overall, the camera does a wonderful job and Infinix Hot 6 Pro is certainly the best camera phone under 8000. 

It runs on Android Oreo 8.0 and has a custom XOS skin over the Android. The skin is smooth is usage but has some bloatware. It has a massive battery of 4000 mAh and can easily power the phone for around 1.5 days. Despite a huge battery and metal body design, the phone feels light and comfortable to hold in hand. There is no IP rating on this phone which is very well understood for a phone priced at 7999. Hot 6 Pro also supports face and fingerprint unlocking which are pretty accurate and fast. It has a single speaker but is very loud and very well enhances from the experience of watching videos or playing games.

With this Hot 6 Pro, Infinix with metal body design, great camera, face unlocking and a massive battery gives a strong competition to the likes of Redmi 5. Redmi Y2 and Honor 7C. This phone easily gets the tag of the best phone under 8000 and completely sets the tone for the next line of price point competition in the budget segment phones. The smartphone will be available for sale from 17th July and is being sold exclusively via Flipkart. 

If you are looking for a performance beast, you can look at the Oppo Realme 1

Brief Review:

Xiaomi has come up with another phone in the under 10000-15000 segment. The Redmi Y1 which was launched last year as a selfie smartphone has received some significant upgrades in terms of internal hardware, cameras, and display. Let's take a look at the brief review of Redmi Y2.

Redmi Y2 comes with a 5.99-inch display of 18:9 aspect ratio and HD+ resolution. The display is bright and vivid with good color reproduction and viewing angles. The resolution is not Full HD so that's a bit disappointing but it is not a deal breaker. The bezel-less on the top and bottom have reduced so the overall size of the phone is similar to other 5.5 inches phones. The build quality of Redmi Y1 wasn't that great but Xiaomi has done a good job with Redmi Y2. The device feels good in the hand. The back is metal so it is a bit slippery but you do get a free transparent case in the box. It comes in 3 colors: Grey, Gold and Rose Gold. Our favorite color is Rose gold. 

Inside the Redmi Y2, we have the same Snapdragon 625 chipset which we have seen on Redmi Note 4 and Redmi Note 5. Snapdragon 625 is a decent performer and very power efficient chipset so we don't have any complaints. The phone is available in 2 variants: 3GB RAM-32GB Storage and 4GB RAM-64GB Storage. If you are a heavy user and use a lot of apps and games then go for the 4GB-64GB variant. If your use only camera, social media apps etc then 3GB variant should be fine. The overall performance of the device is good and you won't face any lag during the day to day usage. Redmi Y2 scores around 70000 on Antutu benchmarks which is similar to Antutu score of other Snapdragon 625 devices like Redmi Note 5 and Mi A1.

Let's talk about camera now. Redmi Y2 is a camera-centric smartphone and have received a good upgrade in the camera department. There is a 12MP+5MP dual camera on the back. The camera is placed vertically just like it was on the Redmi Note 5 Pro. The 12MP camera is a color sensor and 5MP camera is a depth sensor which helps to take portrait mode shots with depth effect. The rear camera performance is good in both daylight and low light conditions. The pixel size is 1.25um which helps to improve the low light performance. Edge detection in portrait mode is good as well.

The selfie camera on the Redmi Y2 is a 16MP sensor with a front flash. The front flash is very useful in low light conditions. The front camera also has portrait mode and can take pictures with depth effect. In our initial tests, the front camera performance was good. Edge detection wasn't that great and you might see your hair getting blurred in some of the shots. The front camera has features like AI beauty which removes blemishes and makes you look beautiful. The front camera is also used for face unlock which is not that quick but still, performance is decent. If you don't like face unlock then there is a fingerprint sensor on the back of the device. It is safe to say that Redmi Y2 is the best budget camera smartphone available in India under Rs. 10000.

Redmi Y2 comes with MIUI 9.5 out of the box which is a custom skin based on Android 8.1. We don't really like MIUI because it comes with a lot of bloatware and the UI isn't great either but you can change that with a launcher. If you like to use dual apps, second space etc then MIUI is great for you.

The battery inside the Redmi Y2 is 3080 mAh and would last for a day on single charge. It would have been great if Xiaomi has gone with a 4000 mAh battery like on Note 5 and Note 5 Pro. The charger inside the box is 5V, 2 Amps charger which will charge the device in around 2 hours. 

It is a dual sim device and Xiaomi has added a dedicated MicroSD slot this time which is great. If 32GB or 64GB is not enough for you, you can slide in a MicroSD card to increase the storage by up to 128GB. Redmi Y2 is not waterproof or dustproof and doesn't have any IP rating so keep it away from water and mud. 

The Redmi Y2 has been priced at 9999 for the 3GB-32GB variant and 12999 for 4GB-64GB variant. It is an Amazon India exclusive device. We think pricing is decent and you are getting good value for money. The price of the lower variant is same as Redmi Note 5. Redmi Y2 has better cameras and Redmi Note 5 has better battery and display. So go for Y2 is you are going to use the camera a lot. If you don't use the camera much then Note 5 or Realme 1 is a better option.

Brief Review:

So as we are all quite aware of the superb Motorola G series which has been a bestseller in the budget and upper-mid segment for Motorola for a few years now. Since the budget segment floor is always slippery with more and more competitions incoming, Motorola had to keep up with all the latest tech standards in the mobile space, circa 2018. So here’s the all new Moto G6.

The Moto G6 takes the premium appeal to the next level which is quite enhanced with the glossy back metal finish, with more curved edges which are really good in the hands. The device is definitely an eye-catcher but there has been more trickling down of premium features as you would have guessed.

There’s a 5-7-inch, IPS LCD display on the front with 18:9 ratio at a resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels taking pixel density to 424PPI which is far better and lovely than that on the new E lineup. The display like any IPS LCD from Motorola is vibrant, bright and just lovely to use. It is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3, which is an added bonus.

Below the screen, there’s home button, which is more like a bar than a button. It supports the gestures from previous Motorola phones and also acts as the fingerprint sensor. On the back, we find the Motorola-style round cutout with the same paint as rest of the body housing the camera setup, below which you’ll find the Moto branding embossed.

Under the hood, we have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 with Adreno 506 GPU. The device is set to arrive in two configurations - 64 GB, 4 GB RAM or 32 GB, 3 GB RAM. Snapdragon 450 is a decent chipset for budget phones and its performance is similar to that of Snapdragon 625. The usual everyday tasks will run without any issues with the SD450. Adreno 506 should be comfortable with all the games on the Play store but the experience might not be very smooth with the high-end titles like PUBG. The benchmark numbers for Moto G6 are here - It scores 3795, 735 on GeekBench multi-core and single-core tests, while we observed a score of 70244 on AnTuTu benchmark.

Its dual-cameras everywhere and Motorola couldn’t resist with It with the Moto G6. In the circular cutout, we find a dual-camera organization with 12 MP (f/1.8) + 5 MP (f/2.2) sensors. Obviously, the low-light performance is observably better and you get all the dual-camera tricks such as the depth effect and the portrait shots, while they are not the best we’ve seen they are certainly good in the range. On the front, there’s an 8MP, f/ 2.2 selfie camera sensor which is good enough. Overall, we are satisfied with the camera performance of G6 and is one of the best cameras in the budget segment, given Its price is close to ₹ 12k.

Android 8.0 runs the show on Moto G6 and It’s clean, responsive and one of the best Android experiences out there. Motorola is not the fastest with updates but It is still better than others like Samsung.

The smartphone comes with 3000mAh battery which can last you for the day but not more. The phone supports fast charging so that should make up for the smaller battery inside the G6. Lastly, there’s no specified IP rating by Motorola, so It’ll be a lot safer to keep this device away from any kind of liquid.

Overall, Moto G6 is an excellent looking device with decent performance. The Moto G6 at Rs. 13999 for the 3-32GB base variant and 15999 for the 4-64GB variant and is exclusively available on Amazon India.

Brief Review:

If you are a little low on budget to get Moto G6 but you are happy with Moto E lineup, yet you crave that superior build of the G lineup, Moto G6 Play is for you. It looks almost similar to Moto G6 but with a few noticeable compromises such as the camera housing only has a single sensor compared to dual on the G6 and there’s a lot more under the hood.

The device is an exact replica of G6 in design and builds, with a big 5.7-inch IPS LCD display up front in all Its glory, Its 2018 and Moto is all in for 18:9 displays so that’s what we see here. The resolution is not baffling though, with 720 x 1440 pixels in a display of this size. It makes a frugal density of 282PPI which might wary most users. The fingerprint display is rear mounted just below the camera housing, so no more gestures like the Moto G6. The display is clear and crisp with good color reproduction and viewing angles are good as well. The display is covered by Gorilla glass but we don't know which version it is.

The device is totally a budget fame on the inside with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 at the centre, coupled by Adreno 505 and 2 or 3 GB of RAM. The device is set to be released in 2 models - one with 16GB of storage and 2GB of RAM while the other model will have 32GB of storage and 3GB of RAM.

The Moto G6 Play is not the most powerful device in the category and We feel Motorola could’ve done better but Hey Its a budget device and until pricing is out, It would be little hard to comment on the treatment Motorola has done with these devices. The device is powerful enough for everyday use cases, but not for you if you like pushing your device to limits as with this one, they’ll be before you fairly soon. Adreno 505 can take almost all games but It isn’t made for heavy weight titles coming every day in the Play Store, given Its age, We don’t think there’s too much of heavy-gaming power left in this GPU.

Let’s talk cameras because there’s much-emphasized 13MP, f/2.0, 1.12μm pixel sensor at the rear of Moto G6 Play. Moto smartphones always have capable cameras and we are not surprised with this one either. It is definitely one of our top picks in the budget category. On the front, you get a big 8MP sensor which is decent enough for some good selfies, don’t expect much in low-light though. The camera interface is a bit slow and we hope Motorola fixes it with a software update.

Android 8.0 powers Moto G6 Play and It is a neat and clean version of Android with all the swiftness and no bloatware. We really like this from Motorola and makes the phone feel more fluid and responsive.

The battery is amazing on this one with 4000mAh of capacity, you surely get a day and a half from this smartphone. On top of that we also have fast charging here, so charging this big boy won’t be an issue. There’s no IP rating by Motorola so be safe and to keep this device safe, keep it away from liquids.

Overall, Moto G6 Play is a well-balanced phone with good performance and great battery. The slow camera is a bit frustrating but it is not a deal breaker.
